This September, you’re invited to take a peek behind some, normally, closed doors.
An annual program of the Ontario Heritage Trust, Doors Open provides an opportunity to explore our heritage treasures.
Doors Open Brampton will focus on 12 historical sites, many celebrating their own milestones, as Canada150 celebrates the sesquicentennial of Confederation. Historic churches, a First World War armoury, a restored Canadian Pacific Railway station and a 19th-century mansion are included on the local list. Many sites offer special activities, tours and exhibits.
The lineup includes Alderlea; Brampton City Hall; Stake Centre of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; Grace United Church; Historic Bovaird House; Jamiat-UI-Ansar (mosque) of Brampton; Lorne Scots Museum and Armoury; Mount Pleasant Recreation Centre; Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives; St. Elias the Prophet Ukrainian Church; Old Ebenezer Pioneer Chapel; and St. Paul’s United Church.
On September 30, all sites are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
